Secret Clinical Strength - Keeping Body Odor Under Control...$25 Walmart #GIVEAWAY

Summer is coming, which means the HEAT will be on!
There is nothing worse than smelling as sweaty as you feel, when it's super duper hot outside!  My parents used to say, "it smells like Campbell's Soup".  HA!  Trust me, it's not a good thing to smell like that...all day long...or at all!  But there are plenty of other factors, besides heat, that can cause you to sweat and smell bad...

What if there was a product, for women, that will provide you with 100% confidence that you will be body odor free for up to 48 hours?  Would you be interested in hearing more.  And can even help with STRESS SWEAT too!

I was sent a $10 Walmart Gift Card, free of charge, to purchase my choice of Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant.  All opinions are given by me, honestly, about my feelings on the products!
That's why I am always confident in using Secret Clinical Strength products!  It's funny that they asked me to do a review/feature, when it's actually the brand that I already personally use as my deodorant of choice..but I was thrilled to get another box at Walmart (I was provided with a $10 gift card to purchase this deodorant) and put it to good use, as it's already heating up in Southern California and I have had my fair share of stress to deal with too.


 Did you know that you're supposed to apply this type of deodorant at night?  Ha!  I didn't...but I guess you learn something new every day, huh?  And this is definitely good to know now...because from now on, I'll be applying it when I get out of bath and feel CONFIDENT (and not even have to worry) that I didn't forget to put on PROTECTION before I left the house in the morning!  I really like this concept...A LOT!  

Would you like to buy some Secret Clinical Strength products for yourself or maybe even your teenage daughter (I have a couple that are starting to wear deodorant too)?  I am excited that I get to offer (1) Lucky One Bored Mommy Reader their chance to #WIN a $25 Walmart Gift Card to use in purchasing some of this Secret Clinical Strength product too!


Being 100% confident, to me, is worth the extra cost, when it comes to fighting body odor during the summer months!  What about you?  CLICK HERE to learn more about this product, see the variety of scents and where it can be purchased.

@WiseDecor - My Bedroom Wall Is Completed & $50 #Giveaway

Since I have moved into my new place, I have been delighted to make it HOME for me and the kids!  Personal, homey touches that make me and the kids smile and brings a peace to our souls!
My bedroom, my own little PERSONAL SPACE, has needed a few finishing touches (in my opinion) and I was delighted to find just the perfect company...that offered just the right add the last element to my bedroom wall!

All products were sent free of charge for this review/feature!  I was not paid to offer my honest opinion about this product or the application of the product!
WiseDecor offers a HUGE (not kidding) selection of "decorative wall lettering to personalize your world".  Their wall decals are AMAZING!

Since I personally love the bible verse: Psalm 4:8, I figured...what better verse to read every night before I go to sleep?  I was excited to order this scripture to serve as a "FAUX" headboard style wall art on the wall my bed is up against!  I was also thrilled that they offered "metallic gold" lettering, because I thought it would be just the subtle yet classy look I was hoping to achieve!
I was not surprised that my new wall decal was easily applied to my wall!  From start to finish, I had it up and done in about 5 minutes flat!  In fact, I have done several of these types of products on my walls before and this one was by far one of the easiest to apply!  I peeled the backing, placed it on the wall, rubbed it all over with the tool that was enclosed in the package and peeled the paper off to leave the most AMAZING metallic gold wall art, right above the pillows on my bed!  I LOVE THIS!  

What wall decal would you pick for your walls?  Do you have a favorite saying or special bible verse too?  I get to offer a $50 Gift Certificate to one LUCKY One Bored Mommy Reader for them to create their own WiseDecor wall decal look!


CLICK HERE to see the entire selection that WiseDecor offers!  You might be inspired to order a few for some of the walls in your home too!

Children, Mommy, Quite Contrary...How Does Your Garden Grow?

As you know...we are growing a "PATIO" style garden in our back patio area and the kids and I are having a blast watching our plants grow and flourish!  
Our tomato plant has an adorable tomato on it already!  And it has several other blooms too!  YUM!  Can't wait to slice into that when it's red, ripe and ready!  A little salt & pepper and my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Look at our little heads of lettuce!  CUTE, right?  These were started by seed!
And our green beans have little tiny beans on it already!  
ADORABLE!  This was another plant started by seeds!
We have already eaten three "homegrown" strawberries!  
And we've sliced them up and shared their sweetness!
Oh yes...and only one lonely carrot seems to have survived the flooding our patio had a few weeks ago.  The pot was the victim of the rain gutter!  Not sure what the final product will look like, but we are anxiously awaiting!

This garden has been a wonderful experience so far for me and the kids!  
Already planning what other things we want to plant next year too!

Ring Stix - Skills, Coordination And SO MUCH FUN!!

During the summer months...we are always looking for fun things to do together!  Fun ways to spend time when we are at the beach, at the lake, or even at the park!  And we LOVE to play games together!

This product was sent free of charge for this review/feature!  I was not compensated monetarily by posting about my honest feelings on this product! 

We were just introduced to a fun new GAME that my kids are having a blast learning how to play!
RING STIX looks easier than it really is!  It requires coordination, skills and the ability to giggle at yourself too!  Because you won't start out as a pro...but you'll learn to love this new game!  
We even had the neighbor kids joining into our game rotation!  
And yes, all four of my kids tried it out...and MAMA too and we loved it!

Here they are...trying it out for the first time!
The only suggestion I would make, is that the Ring Stix should come with two rings...just in case one flies over the fence (we had to go fence hopping to get back our lost ring).  It's always good to have a back up!  Plus, it's lightweight, portable and doesn't take up much room, so it's the perfect thing to put in the back of your car, so you're certain to never be bored!

CLICK HERE to learn more about RING STIX and why this may be loaded in your car for the next beach day, the next trip to the lake or a BBQ at the park with your family!

The New Generation - "GIRL MEETS WORLD"

One of my favorite shows growing up was "Boy Meets World".  I watched every episode, cried at graduation, cried at Cory and Topanga's wedding, etc.  It was a show series that my sister and I really loved!

So now, Disney Channel is bringing them back, in new roles!  
No longer awkward kids, they are now adults who are helping their own daughter find "her own world".
Girl Meets World will premiere this summer and I am certain this will be a show that the girls are going to love!  Despite the fact we don't have cable, I hope that Netflix will be putting this one on their roster, so we can enjoy this new GENERATION of one of my favorite shows!  
And yes, we are promised to see a "FEW" other favorite characters make an appearance on this new series too!

This does make me feel a little OLD, however, since I am old enough to be a mommy of a Middle Schooler (our son will start 7th grade this fall), I guess they can be too, right?

We can't wait to watch this with my kids!!

Fresh Squeezed "BLOOD ORANGE" Juice - Saturday Fun!

We have friends who live on property that has acres of avocado trees (my favorite), lemon trees and "blood orange" trees.  Seriously...fresh citrus never SMELLED so wonderful!  
The kids and I went to play today at their house and we ended up spending the day, picking ripe "blood oranges", eating a few as we went along...
then washing them, cutting them and then...
JUICING THEM by hand!  It was a sweet, sticky, but super fun filled event!  The kids were very hard workers and their efforts paid off when a pitcher and a half of naturally sweet and slightly sour "BLOOD ORANGE" juice!  Yummy!  Not only is it tasty, but it's naturally full of vitamin C, which is great for their growing little bodies!
They enjoyed the benefits of their hard work and I'm sure we will be back to have another fun filled afternoon in their CITRUS WONDERLAND again soon!

Want a glass of FRESH SQUEEZED "Blood Orange" Juice too?
